Five Troublesome Footwear
We all know that women love shoes, and they often buy a dozen or more for their personal collection. Majority of the shoes they collect are high heels. Some women who wear these shoes suffer from foot ailment like morton’s neuroma.
Podiatrist Andre Shapiro, spokesman for the American Podiatric Medical Association, gives the following footwear as the most troublesome kinds of shoes.
Spike heels are shoes that can strain the heels of the feet, and all women know that. But they still wear it, for they look like a goddess on it. As the height of the heels increase, the possibility of injury also increases. It is advised that you wear spike heels no more than two inches in height, or else, problems may happen.
Flip-Flops are footwear that offers very little protection to your feet, since its open design exposes your feet to the outside elements. Unlike shoes, flip-flops have no cushion or support. Flip-flops are only good to wear at the pool or at the beach. It is preferred to use sandals than flip-flops because it gives better protection and support.
We would think that ballet flats are better than spike heels because your feet lie flat on the floor compared to spike heels’ steep angle. Well, ballet flats are also troublesome to wear, for it offers little protection, cushioning and foot support. Ballet flats are better than flip-flops, but that advantage is not enough to not acquire foot injuries.
These are fashionable and sensual shoes for women. But they are just as troublesome as high heels. These shoes can pinch and irritate the nerve of your foot and can lead to moton’s neuroma, metatarsalgia, and hammertoes. If you can’t resist wearing these kinds of shoes, just wear it occasionally.
Backless mules look like an ordinary high heels but the main difference is that the back support is missing for the backless mules. This kind of shoes is the common cause of hammertoes in women for it makes your toes grab for support.
